. the department of defense is very comprehensively represented here at fleet week this year, more so than ever before. we have a representative from the assistant secretary of defense for homeland defense and american security affairs in the audience and they were here in august when we did our exercise with the city. fema is well represented and we have several defense coordinating officers here over the past couple of days. certainly the california national guard is represented heavily here. obviously they are going to be the first guys to respond to a disaster and they have several interesting roles not only from a state perspective but as they get federalized or with the dual status commander managing federal response and federal authorities of military authorities flowing in. and most significantly, we're represented today with the commander of northern command, general jackoby. as you know, defense report to civil authorities is not a primary mission area for the department of defense. we have codified it in policy over the years and certainly things have advanced since 9/11 and hurri

the alliance's defense will look like on turkey's border to syria. >> it is designed to detect, intercept, and hit an enemy missile. there are batteries like these stationed in germany. some could be deployed to turkey within weeks. berlin is calling it a legitimate request from a nato ally. >> turkey has already been hit by cross-border mortar fire from syria, so it is understandable that turkey is holon and has asked the alliance for a sign of solidarity. refusing that request would have profound implications for the alliance and send the wrong signal to the regime of president assad. >> nato is warning damascus not to cross a red line, for instance, by using chemical weapons. >> the use of chemical weapons would be completely unacceptable for the whole international community, and if anybody resorts to these terrible weapons, i would expect an immediate reaction. >> apart from germany, the u.s. and netherlands are also expected to supply patriots. both have backed a rapid deployment to their nato allies. >> i think if one of our allies asks us to help with that, i think you need to con
.s., the netherlands, and germany providing the weapons but the alliance stressed the move was defensive. >> the deployment of patriot missiles will serve as an effective deterrent and that way, diaz with the situation along the syrian-turkish border. >> russia is the one fly in the right man. the foreign minister said he would not block the move. a sign an old ally may be losing patience with president assaad. they hope deploying missiles will help stabilize tensions but the bigger concern is what is happening inside syria itself. specifically, what the regime might do with its stockpile of chemical weapons. syria has used much of its considerable arsenal to crush the rebellion. hidden from view it is believed to have developed a chemical weapons program and there are reports of activity, prompting this uncompromising western message. >> we are concerned for the same reason the united states has. we have sent our own clear, private message directly to them about the serious consequences that would follow from the use of such weapons. >> those consequences are not been spelled out and sy
. the joint statement by the german defense and foreign ministries described turkey as the nato member most at risk from the civil war in neighboring syria. the conflict has sporadically spilled over onto turkish territory, and there are fears syria could also fire rockets. germany says troops are only being deployed to protect turkey. >> our support for turkey is clearly defensive in nature and is aimed at military deterrents -- deterrence. both turkey opposes support and our agreement to provide it made clear that this mission has nothing to do with instituting or maintaining a no-fly zone. >> germany has distanced itself from statements by the head of nato and the u.s. secretary of state that nato could intervene in syria if damascus begins using chemical weapons. >> germany's 16 state premiers have agreed to pursue a ban against the right wing radical npd party. >> and the prohibition would have to be upheld by germany's constitutional court. angela merkel government has so far been skeptical of the measure, saying that if it fails as a similar move did in 2003, i too will only encourag

to intercept any potential missiles coming from syria. and defense officials say any country that sends its equipment is likely to send their own troops to operate it we're told no one has signed deployment orders officially just yet. it's almost certain at this hour u.s. troops will be on the move. there is absolutely no indication our fighting men and women would cross into syrian territory. but the pentagon has told the obama administration it would require more than 75,000 soldiers to secure syria's chemical weapons stockpile. it's impossible to say exactly how much that would cost. but the price tag for that sort of operation could easily run into the billions of dollars. now, again, there is no indication at all that such an operation will happen any time soon. all this coming just days after president obama warned the syrian regime of consequences if it turned chemical weapons on its own citizens. and today secretary of state hillary clinton saying the world has made that perfectly clear to president bashar assad. >> we have sent an unmistakable message that this would cross a red li
you very much. mr. president. >> meanwhile as nato prepares to deploy patriot missile defenses to turkey, hillary clinton warns syria against moving its chemical weapons. >> this is a red line for the united states. i'm not going to telegraph in any specifics what we are would do in the event of credible evidence that the assad regime has resorted to using chemical weapons against their own people, but suffice it to say, we are certainly planning to take action if that eventuality were to occur. >> and while washington buzzes over this video tribute to clinton, some are asking is it a farewell to the secretary or prelude to 2016? honoring the icons. politics meets hollywood. a tribute to the arts. president obama finds a way to salute an eclectic group of honor honorees. >> we've got my guy sitting next to dustin hoffman. dave letterman alongside one of the greatest ballerinas of all time. i couldn't think dave dances. there's no smooth transition from ballerina to led skep lin. they redefine the rock and roll lifestyle. we do not have video of this. there was some hotel rooms

of seamless experience they deserve, then our job, secretary of veterans apairs and secretary of defense, we have to make it clear there's got to be good cooperation at all levels. this effort can want be about surf. it's got to be about serving our veterans. i'm very encouraged that the level of collaboration between the two departments, i believe, better than it's ever been in the past, yet, we have to reach much deeper into a level of collaboration that will meet needs of our veterans. we owe it to them to give them the tools they need to put their lives back together and pursue their goals whether it's getting a good education, best health care, or axeling in a new government, serving in government, or starting a business. as i said before, this is, in many ways, a national security issue. it goes to the heart of taking care of the people that fight for us, and ensuring that we can then recruit the very best force that's possible. part of that is making sure we maintain faith with our troops and with our families. we have to give them confidence that they have world class support systems
a breakthrough. joining me is former defense secretary william cohen, thanks so much for joining us. >> good to be this you. >> russia sounded a few different signals this week. putin in turkey, making some suggestions perhaps they would not be sticking with assad as strongly as they have been in the past. then this is the first time that foreign minister met with hillary clinton on assad, met with the u.n. mediator and we're being cautioned this is no break through but there will be follow-up meeting. seems some u.s. officials russia is hedging its bets or beginning to see a future without assad. >> i think that's the case. we've talked about this before, but there is a russian card to be played, to be played by russia itself. they have influence with president assad, they have interests in syria, and i think that they can see the handwriting on the wall that assad is eventually going to go, whether it's in the near term, long term, eventually he's going. you can see the shift in momentum as far as the rebels now starting to gain much greater military success than they have in the past. the
and that the defense is a good of security assistance management. want to welcome all of you and would will start, i think will start with you, dr. shaffer, since you're the prettiest gal at the table. >> thank you for the opportunity to testify in front of this committee. would often think of iran as the middle eastern country but actually it sits in the crossroads of a number of regions, southwest asia, central asia and the caucasus. and actually the influence between iran and the south caucasus is two ways. not only is iran as you point out directly extremely active in diversion in the region and destabilizing any of the countries that are pro-western in the region, but also there's two-way influence because iran is both multiethnic edged up after member have the operation of a rant is in persian. the whole of the population of iran, a third is ethnic pashtun die. this is what drives iran's policies in the region is to destabilize other to make sure its own ethic by jordi's will not be detracted. and for this reason we find the islamic republic of iran is actually an ally of christian armenia in
that is are aware, are very quick to point out that at this point they have absolutely no defense whatsoever against that type of weaponry. ever since this conflict began, the civilian population has been incapable of protecting itself against bullets and bombs. there most certainly is no defense whatsoever should the regime decide to deploy chemical weapons. >> are they afraid of that possibility? do they talk about that, the possibility of their own government turning on them like that and unleashing these type of weapons? >> they most certainly do, suzanne. especially obviously the conversation amongst those that are aware of it. they do feel that this is a regime that has absolutely no mercy whatsoever, and the greater the tranglehold on regime forces grows, the greater the likelihood that the assad government could, in fact, choose to take this kind of drastic measure against its own population. people have no doubt in their minds about the lengths to which this government -- the assad government will go to stay in power. one rebel commander, we were speaking to yesterday, was saying if you loo

"so long, hold on. >> the supreme court of the law of the land. when i hear these accusations that black people and voter i.d. laws disproportionately affect minorities, it applies -- it implies we have something missing in our brand. if white americans can get all the processes to follow the law, what are you telling lack people? that they are not good enough? that is what bothers me a lot about the rhetoric coming from democrats and the left. there has to be something special when we deal with minorities because they are to feeble minded because they cannot follow the rules like everyone else. when you treat everyone like victims, i do not think they will aspire. >> more with the publisher of conserva
problem. you know, clinton took that approach in 1993. he cut defense way back. i think the president could do a little bit more to attract some people over to his side if he did that. but i'm just struck by the fact that we've got this completely outside game. >> right. >> there's not a lot going on on the inside in terms of real negotiation. but we'll get there. >> and steve, this is a point we brought up last hour. you know, everybody is debating over raising top rates for people making $250,000 or more. you look -- tom's talking about $88 trillion. you look at the small percentage, these tax increases as part of the bigger problem, and you realize that we're not even having a serious discussion right now. we're obsessed on something that's not going to save us. >> well, that's true. first, with respect to what david said, i think partly why they're playing an outside game is because they've been criticized in the past of playing too much of an inside game. the president's criticized himself for not taking his message outside, telling his story. secondly, i do think the president h

the context of what turkey asked nato for, the patriot missile defense system, you have nato member countries who are now essentially saying through their partly i wants, yes, we are going to help you militarily defend yourself. the big question, however, is are other countries bringing up the possible threat of chemical weapons coming from syria as a way of laying the ground work for another kind of not intervention, but a assistance to rebel groups. you have a lot of strategic talk that's being publicly sort of expressed out there that could be laying the ground work for strategic help for rebel groups. also for russia and iran and china and other countries that support the assad regime to perhaps distance themselves a little bit from the syrian president. we have all those reasons that are coming -- that are like the pieces of the puzzle. you make it out. is the threat of chemical weapons being used against the syrians an imminent threat? you have a lot of opinions out there that that's not the case right now. >> good balanced approach. we like that. a lot of people just kind of beating th
defense secretary leon panetta says the most recent intelligence raises, his words, serious concerns. >> the whole world is watching. the whole world is watching very closely and the president of the united states has made very clear that there will be consequences, there will be consequences if the assad regime makes a terrible mistake by using these chemical weapons on their own people. >> earlier today, leon panetta. we'll have a report from the pentagon on syria in a moment. >>> first, shock waves in washington. a powerful republican senator suddenly calling it quits. south carolina senator jim demint will step down december 31st to lead the heritage foundation. it's a powerful conservative think tank in washington. demint says he can be more effective outside the senate. >> a lot of my role in the senate has been stopping bad things and saying no to bad things. but we need to do more than that and tell americans what we're for. one of the mistakes i think the republican party made the last two years is trying to make obama the issue without sharing with america bold reform ideas
and defensiveness about the coal industry on the wane in america. today coal provides a third of the power down from nearly half four years ago. coal-burning power plants are shuting down across the country. there's a war on coal as you may have heard during the campaign, but the aggressors aren't bureaucra bureaucrats but it's natural gas. specifically the technology radically transformed natural gas production something called hydraulic fracturing or fracking. the name is opaque but the goal is simple. tens of thousands of feet below the surface there are deposits of natural gas trapped up within giant rock formations. fracking lets energy companies drill down to release the gas. that process has fundamentally revolutionized america's energy economy in a few years. the average annual price of natural gas is less than half what it was in 2008. large swaths of the united states from colorado to texas to ohio to upup state new york have massive natural gas reserves making them right for fracking. rhetts rebel based on concerns about health and the safety of the process. those battles may decide the c
